Churchill and the alien
Bookies (in the UK) slashed the odds on aliens existing after it emerged Winston Churchill ordered a cover-up of a wartime encounter.
William Hill reported a surge of people placing bets after claims were published about Churchill fearing public “panic”. One gambler placed a bet that would see them win more than £1 million if any such claims are proved, reports the Daily Telegraph.
The Second World War incident supposedly involved an RAF bomber encountering a UFO off the east coast of England. Churchill allegedly banned reporting of the “bizarre” incident for half a century amid fears disclosures about unidentified flying objects would create public hysteria.
